i figured youre the person to send this to bc not only do i like your writing it is also partially all your fault. anyway i started reading ur fic and /i loved it/ but its only 2 chapters long so i moved to read a different fic and i already got through 12 chapters but its,, unfinished. and yall upload like...once in a bajillion years (dont stress abt this i want u to take ur time!!) so anyway my question is what should i read? your all time favourites? doesnt even have to be hs really thank!!!
aaaa firstly im glad you loved it and i do apologize that i am such a slow ass writer because honestly i, too, want to see this fucking fic being completed one day.
and boy do i have recommendations haha… i mean apart from my uh… 180 ao3 bookmarks i read a loooot of fics (mostly shippy ones) in my spare time. imma just card through and pick some that i especially love.
so here’s a list of fic recs!! (with links)
- scrimshaw is a really good vriska/rose/aradia KINDA western au fic that has some… amazing scenes in it. (im talkin fighting on the back of a dragon here dude its insane)
- black tie is equally as touching as it is hilarious and i love it. (rosemary with dirk/john hints… kinda? kanaya and dirk have a pesterchum convo about the marriage and it is Gud)
- tonight alone (explicit) has some dirk/jake with dirk being drunk and calling him for…. You Know. i really like how its kinda bittersweet?
- the road is long but bitches be slammin’ god so this writer? of this here fic? i am convinced is a god amongst men. fucking….. incredible prose in everything they write so i’m just going to like…. rec you to read everything that they’ve written that piques your interest. (dirk/jake, kinda)
- a fatal error has ocurred is… unfinished, yes, and probably won’t be updated for a while, but man im telling you to read it, mortior’s hal is perhaps the fucking best ive seen so far. its…. great. love it….. (hal/dirk)
- something involving arson …what more could you ask for. the title has it all. (dirk/john)
- cold water oh this one will absolutely kill you. please mind the tags in this ok. its really good but also… torture. (i wouldn’t really call it… shippy…)
- iller than ill WILL MAKE YOU COMBUST OUT OF RIDICULOUSLY ADORABLE CONTENT. its fucking great dude. sawtooth and squarewave take care of dirk when he feels sick and its…… cute. (dirk and his robo children brother dudes)
- i’m at the combination dunkin donuts & urgent care god. both funny and cute and definitely should have been longer even tho i have no idea how it could be extended. its just so good. (dave/karkat)
- who’s asking will probably make you laugh one second and then cry. i… honestly think about it all the time?? dirk manages to contact his bro. and. well. you know their situation ): (dirk and dave centric)
- sinking fear in quiet steps is…………..hoooo it is sad. im a sucker for sads being faced with comforting hugs and talks. and this is really well written. dirk struggles with dealing with suddenly living in society and having a brother. (dirk and dave centric)
- detective pony see this is the type of fic that i expect everyone has read at this point and if they haven’t then…. wyd…
its an altered book that dirk made for jane and like. the only thing along with theatre of coolty (how do i fucking explain what that is) which has dirk completely and wonderfully in character. (just fucking dirk)
- in the end well. humanity disappears one day and dave and john are alone in the world. just as sad as you can imagine. (john/dave)
- bear and bull this fic just has such incredible emotions and an ability to make me cry because….. gay… ACTUALLY okay this is another AUTHOR which i have to rec. just look through their entire ao3 acc and you will find a goldmine dude. another favorite of theirs is like… an adventure time au thing? its great. (john/dave)
- like one sundered star K SO THIS IS INCREDIBLY LONG. but bear with me. listen. hear me out. the characters are nearly all in fucking character. and it includes almost every fucking character. listen. if you want to have something good to read for a Long While, read this. (it has a lot of ships, not REALLY even a main character? honestly?) also its like my favorite of all time if imma b honest.
OKAY and that will have to be all for now haha. i have more favorites obviously but this list is already long and i am a sleepy dude rn so until you’ve read through all these then i hope these will suffice!!!
